The Gentlemen follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London.
Meryl Streep was downright hilarious in Florence Foster Jenkins as a 1940s New York City socialite with bigger than life dreams of becoming a distinguished opera singer.
This week we attended the press conference for Paramount Pictures’ latest release “Florence Foster Jenkins.” The event was held at Ritz Carlton Hotel in the Emery Roth Ballroom. Participating Talent included: Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins), Hugh Grant (St. Clair Bayfield), Simon Helberg (Cosme McMoon) and Director Stephen Frears.
Sound the alarms– Bridget Jones is having a baby!? As in the socially awkward American with a British accent who magically got both Colin Firth and Hugh Grant is having a baby?
As a side note, I rarely like romantic comedies, let alone romantic movies themselves. That’s why this and 1980s Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movies are a big deal to me.
Filming for Bridget Jones’s Baby started a little over a month ago, on October 2, 2015, in London’s Olympic Park in Pinewood. What seems surprising however is that while Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth return from both original movies, Hugh Grant is nowhere to be seen, neither in filming nor in having his name attached to the film. However, there is a certain Grey’s Anatomy star that was seen smooching Zellweger last month.
That’s right, Patrick Dempsey has signed onto the film, with his role unknown but we can all safely assume that Mark Darcy (Firth) does not enjoy any minute of what’s going on. And considering that this is the first film in the franchise not to be based off of the books by Helen Fielding’s best selling novels, we cannot be entirely sure what the film will be about. All we can do is wait and anticipate.
